Bids invited for Bu Hasa upgrade

07 June 2002

Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Oil Operations (Adco) has invited commercial bids by 11 June for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract to upgrade surface production facilities at Bu Hasa (MEED 11:1:02).

The prospective bidders are understood to be Italy's Snamprogetti, Paris-based Technip-Coflexip, and Bechtel and Fluor Daniel, both US-based. Technical bids for the contract were submitted in March (MEED 22:3:02).

The estimated $250 million project involves the installation of four new separation units, each of 120,000 barrels a day (b /d) in capacity. They will replace the two existing two-phase units, each of 50,000 b/d. In addition, four units will be rehabilitated and Bu Hasa's instrumentation and control system will be upgraded. Snamprogetti is the front-end engineering and design (FEED) contractor for the project.

In October, Siemens Industrial Solutions - Oil & Gas, part of Germany's Siemens, was awarded an estimated $22 million EPC contract for the electrical power systems at the onshore oil field. The 22-month contract involves the installation of electrical power skids for water injection (MEED 26:10:01).

Further onshore field development is planned in Abu Dhabi. Adco has invited bids for the EPC contract covering the Bab field development. Estimated to cost $175 million, the project calls for a 100,000-b/d expansion of production capacity (MEED 24:5:02; 30:11:01).
